The Cooper's Inn was a wonderful experience after a day of sightseeing on the coast of Nova Scotia in the town of Shelburne. The host were very helpful and recommended a superb restaurant for dinner and handled the reservations. The town of Shelburne is on the water and made for excellent photographs. They had an excellent breakfast the following morning.

The Cooper's Inn has a prime waterfront location in the midst of historic Shelburne. We stayed in the McGill Room on the second floor. It was small but very comfortable with a water view. We were surprised to find a small bottle of NS wine and a handwritten card welcoming us. Very thoughtful. At breakfast, unlike most B&Bs, we were... More

This Inn is located across the street from the waters edge and is very inviting. The garden/yard area is beautifully done and invites you to spend a moment or two relaxing on the red benches provided for your enjoyment. The innkeepers are very nice and provide you with a lovely place to stay and dine. The breakfast room was tastefully... More

After two unsuccessful attempts in previous years to reserve at the Cooper's Inn, ( our fault entirely, we didn't book early enough!), we enjoyed a delightful two night stay in early September. The Inn fully lived up to its stellar reputation for the perfect location, beautiful decor, easy access to the beauties of Shelburne and, most of all, for its... More

The Cooper Inn room had a great view of the ocean. The room was clean although simple. The breakfast had lots of choices and was terrific. It is close to all the activities in the area. The hosts are very helpful and informative.

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely B&B in this quiet spot with a gorgeous view of the harbour across the street. Had a gorgeous room with huge 4 poster and a massage chair thrown in. The breakfast started with a yummy juice mix and then a choice of fresh baked muffins and hot dishes. It was very pleasant to... More

Our stay at the Cooper’s Inn was relaxing and comfortable. Quality and attention to detail in a quiet manner were a hallmark of the management. For example, the breakfast overture, warm fresh muffins made in the Cooper’s Inn kitchen, was followed by choice of pancakes, eggs, French toast, etc, all prepared with the same care as the muffins. The day’s... More

Charming inn on the main street. Very comfortable and charming. I might have wished that the proprietess was warmer and more welcoming not only to us, but the other guests as well, but perhaps she was just under stress or having a bad day.

We stayed here in August. This inn is right on the water and very close to walk to everything in Shelburne. Good breakfast with lots of choices. While in Shelburne, be sure to eat at the Charlotte Lane Cafe -- excellent!!!

I got a room in the annex on the garden side of the building. Supposedly one of the less-desirable rooms, as it didn't overlook the water. Wow! It could not have been nicer! Quiet, with a great place outside, to sit and relax . Right on the waterfront, so a quick trip through the garden, and you could take a... More
